UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - A new survey ranks Wisconsin fifth in beer consumption – which may be surprising, considering the state’s drinking heritage and brewery production.

The Beer Institute said Tuesday that the average Wisconsinite 21-and-older drank 36-point-two gallons of beer last year.

North Dakota tops the list with 45-point-eight gallons per person.

The state has attracted lots of younger workers due to its booming oil extraction industry.

New Hampshire is ranks second followed by Montana, South Dakota, and then the Badger State.

Wisconsin has the divisional headquarters for Milwaukee’s Miller Brewing Company.

It also has City Brewery, the former Heileman’s in La Crosse – plus a lot of craft beers made by breweries such as Stevens Point and New Glarus.
